Jenson Button and Cristiano Ronaldo looked like they could have created a new sport on Monday, as the two Tag Heuer ambassadors came together for the first time at Madrid's famous Circuito del Jarama.

The racetrack was turned into a gigantic football pitch for the pair, as Formula One champ Jenson drove a McLaren 650S while Cristiano, a two-time European Player of the Year winner, aimed footballs into the moving car.

The pair also took on slaloms and donuts in the car as Cristiano shared the co-driving experience with Jenson. Speaking at the event, Tag Heuer's president of the LVMH Watch Division Jena-Claude Biver said: "Cristiano Ronaldo and Jenson Button have incredible guts and drive. Don’t crack under pressure means something very powerful to them both. We definitely share a mindset. "It was a quick break for the two sporting stars as both are in the middle of important seasons - Jenson is fighting for points in the Formula One season with his team McLaren, while Cristiano is playing for Spanish football team Real Madrid.
